TV no longer getting picture, just sound

This is due to a fualty logic board inside and it needs to be replaced, Also the power supply that send the power to this logic board is also suspect since you turn it on it stays on for 2 secouns or so then goes off.

1. Check power supply unit (you may want to dust it out as well, check for buldging capcitors.

2. Check logic board this is what sends signals to the LCD ( we would call it a video card).

3. if you cannot do this yourself it will not cost much for it to just be looked at and diagnosed before havingto go out a purchase another TV.

Keep in mind I am going by the information you given me and would expect a rating on the information only so please rate Accordenly. :)

It was my pleasure to assist your free question today, I do invite that you chat with one of us experts so we can diagnose live.
